Item description for Called to Be a Catechist; Your Practical Guide (Catechist Formation) by Cullen W. Schippe...
Overview The new National Directory for Catechesis encourages the solid and continuing formation of catechists: "Since effective catechesis depends on virtuous and skilled catechists, their ongoing formation should enhance the human, spiritual, and apostolic qualities and catechetical skills they bring to their ministry" (page 238). This just-revised little book provides an important part of that formation. As a practical guide, it sets up - in five short chapters - what a catechist needs to know about his or her mission, about growth in a catechetical spirit, about knowing the Faith, about understanding the students, about keeping learning active and engaging, and about developing good catechetical habits. Called to Be a Catechist also provides a quick-reference glossary that is culled from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This Guide makes a great gift for all the catechists in the parishboth the new and seasoned ones.

Provided Much Needed Guidance Jan 25, 2006
This is my 2nd year as a 3rd grade religion teacher. My 1st year was a little difficult and I wanted a tool that would help me get through year 2 and help me teach the students. Called to Be a Catechist has provided the support I needed for technical questions, classroom ideas, discipline ideas, and faith guidance. My classes have gone more smoothly as a result of this book and I recommend it to anyone who teaches catechism classes.
